  • I know you said not to use bicarbonate of soda, but it is part of my grandmother’s home remedy that she used to use on me. I know it works on fire ant bites (it’s Texas y’all��) and her remedy work very well. It stops the pain almost immediately, the redness and inflammation disappear quickly, and it looks like it was never there. For any one interested here’s the recipe.

    1.) Crush one aspirin. If you have a lot of bites or stings you’ll obviously need more aspirin.
    2.) Pour a little bit of baking soda in with the crushed aspirin. I never measure it, but if I had to guess it’s probably not more than a 1/4 tsp.
    3.) Add just enough water to make a paste.
    4.) Apply the paste to the sting or bite.
    5.) Once the pain has diminished grab the nearest shoe and smash the devilish beast back to hell where it came from.
